    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Could float it. City support for the "giant rubber ducky” 🦆baseball stadium nets them half a $billion or so from proponent, which finances a chunk of rail deck park (and new garbage cans). ArchDaily ArchDaily

    Canada Square potential re-development (@Duplex, Oxford, ?s, Pelli Clarke Pelli)

    Anyone else getting a bit of First Capital's Humber Bay/Christie vibe? Minus the lake.

    Toronto | The United BLDG | 179.52m | 52s | Davpart | B+H

    Just a little screenshot of The United BLDG location (just left of 488 University) from my future render looking east.

    Or a portion of the barge may need to slide under #1 after rotation (sunken a bit less perhaps).

    Toronto | The One | 308.6m | 85s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I posted these on another forum and after a second look... starting scratching my head. At first glance I thought we were just seeing the addition of a horizontal trim element splitting the smaller top volume (6 floors)... but the render above of the top volume offers more floors and 2 sets of...

    Most of the public realm preliminary design ideas are great. The only quibble is the "rolled curb" between cyclists and pedestrians which I think invites bike vs.strolling collisions (via last second pedalling detours ;)).

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    Steel. I posted this earlier (page link below) about Walters (The One) landing this job. https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/threads/toronto-160-front-west-239-87m-46s-cadillac-fairview-as-gg.17751/page-109

    Toronto | PJ Condos | 156.96m | 48s | Pinnacle | Hariri Pontarini

    Great shots Red Planet. I initially thought the patchiness of the pre-cast brick was just an optical quirk seen in long shots, but close-ups are indeed .. patchy. Is this the masonary equalivent of the ROM "Crystal" mis-match cladding curse?

    Toronto | YSL Residences - Yonge Street Living (383 Yonge) | 299m | 85s | Cresford | Kohn Pedersen Fox

    Don't want to jinx the office proposals on the table, but of course the stump was commercial and YSL is for Living.

    ^^ So let's go with the "Accelerated Option" (rebuild)... so Calatrava can oversee both his Portlands bridges ... the 2nd being his south hybrid cable-stayed beauty (with swing portion) linking to the Island(s). :)

    Toronto | Grand Hotel Redevelopment | 160.8m | 50s | Amexon | Core Architects

    I'm assuming there is a lane-way between this gorgeous mural and the new development so I think it at least deserves way-finding signage beside the side-walk, and a crossing-guard to stop vehicle deliveries during the pedestrian "viewing hour". :cool: Pray no-one tags the mural once it's hidden.

    Thx... I was just looking looking at the Phase 2 drawings for Cherry South and Commissioners. There's also the Lakeshore rail bridge "modifications". Wonder if that means re-conditioned/altered, or might there be a new design element...? EDIT: BTW for those who haven't seen it, there's a...

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    It will be interesting to see how many of these instant icons will grace the Portlands when the future plays out. I know there are four in the present plans (including the longer twin span which should be a stunner)... early plans suggested a half-dozen or so. I'm ok with 5 total (just so...

    ^ That seems logical, unless the 2nd barge needs to be sunk a bit after bridge rotation... to slide under the 1st bridge. kotsy

    Toronto | One Delisle | 155m | 44s | Slate | Studio Gang

    Forgive me but I think you're confused... "shingles" are blisters or rashes but they don't look like actual shingles (like the white ones on One Delisle's crown).
